The characters were well voiced and most of the main characters had a seperate voice. The Narrator was animated and matched mood of the current scene well.
I've seen claims that this is similar to Harry Potter and really it's not. I'd be more incline to compare this book to "The Dark Is Rising" volume 2. I think this is a better comparison because unlike Harry otter, both this book and the otehr are gears towards and older YA range.
I can't really answer this without giving away spoilers
Yes. While there were some areas that dragged, I was hooked form the beginning and had to resist the urge to skip to the end to find out what happened.
I'll be interested in seeing if the second book in the sereis stands up just as well as the first book. I enjoyed this novel because the characters seemed fleshed out, there was some mystery and not everything is neatly wrapped up.
I enjoyed the book and look forward to a sequel. Well written and performed. Kept my interest throughout.
I loved listening to the story of characters and finding what they are going to be in life. This was a wonderful fresh of air!
Rufus because he cares for the boys
Very much so !
Keep them coming. I love the story line, and her books
I highly recommend this book. I love Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. Together they put they have started an awesome adventure. Reminds me of Harry Potter, and every time I thought the story was predictable it wasn't.
Cal of course.
I don't usually like books read by guys, but he did an excellent job.
